'Being the Hero of My Own Life'

Students will select an issue/problem they care, are concerned or are curious about and become engaged as a citizen with this issue. Students will then project into the future of their life

and present an aspirational trajectory of their

own engaged citizenship. 


EEC uses the power of story and art to connect program participants to what

they care about in support of the process

of becoming effective, empowered,

engaged citizens.
